Sterling Trading Tech (STT) unveiled its first major expansion of sophisticated analytics for its RaaS (Risk as a Service) solution, The Sterling Risk Engine. The cloud-based, high performance solution calculates intraday, real-time risk-based haircuts and portfolio margin using the OCC’s TIMS methodology, in addition to simulating portfolio risk under user-defined market shocks and volatility shifts.
The Sterling Risk Engine launched in the Spring of 2017 and was the first commercial risk took to utilize sophisticated quantitative and big data techniques to manage risk in real-time for hundreds of portfolios. As the solution is cloud-based, there are no hardware or software requirements allowing brokerages and clearing firms to easily monitor market and credit risk.
“Today, real-time ad-hoc stress tests are a ‘must’ to evaluate and monitor risk at both the group and account levels, and cloud-based solutions offer the optimal delivery platform,” states Ravi Jain, Director of Risk and Derivatives who built the Sterling Risk Engine in-house and is leading Sterling’s continuous functionality updates and additions. The expanded analytics and the new interface now make it easier for risk managers to monitor and manage risk. New functionalities include full support of futures and options on futures in risk shocks, cross margin calculations, CME SPAN margin calculations, liquidity risk, and detailed risk detail drill down capability by individual portfolio.
“Our clients value relying on us as a partner for their integrated trading platform, risk and compliance and infrastructure needs,” states Andrew Actman, Director of Business Development, “…by saving them time and money on their trading technology solutions, they are able to focus on the ever-changing market and maximizing their profits and leave the sophisticated trading connectivity us.”
